Firearm Safety Certificate - Study Guide

Effective Jan. 1, 2015, CA State Law requires firearms buyers (unless exempted) to obtain the Firearms Safety Certificate (FSC) prior to the transfer of a firearm.

In order to obtain the FSC, you must pass a written test on firearm safety and laws as specified by CA State Law.

The CA Dept. of Justice (DOJ) has published the study guide below as a means to prepare individuals to pass the FSC test. Click on the English or Spanish version to download a .pdf version of the study guide. (The DOJ no longer offers printed copies of the study guide.)
